Here is the coat connected Gémo with My Little Beacon ! The clothing retailer Gémo sells in store and on the Internet a jacket for children from 3 to 10 years old integrating a GPS geolocation beacon. Parents will be able to follow their children remotely via their smartphone.
Gemo specifies that this device "will reassure parents on their children's journey, when they go to school, play sports, or when they go on outings or are invited to a birthday party". The aim of this product is to "follow the position of the children without bothering them or making them feel like they are being watched".
Of course there will be little males who will take down their beacons, fix it on their friends, on their school teacher or on a street lamp ... It might be funny !
